Syracuse, and specifically the football team, has been doing good work in the community, not only the past couple weeks but on a consistent basis.  Every once in a while a specific person gets singled out for their efforts and SU defensive lineman Bud Tribbey is the man of the hour when it comes to community service in Syracuse.

Tribbey has been nominated for the 2010 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team for his work in the classroom and in the community.  Trib's efforts include...

Hosted children from the Ronald McDonald House and Make-A-Wish Foundation with his football team each week, teaching the kids about football and teamwork

Prepared and served lunches each Saturday afternoon to feed those in need at the city’s Rescue Mission

An active participant in the ‘Cuse Cares engagement program, which allows student-athletes to give, receive and share what they’ve learned in athletics with the community

In order to meet the criteria for the award, players "must be actively involved and committed to working with a charitable organization, service group or community service while maintaining good academic standing."

Not surprisingly, West Virginia does not have a nominee...
